In the initial stages of wine cellar design, an important factor to consider is the environment surrounding the wine cellar. Do not plan wine cellars around areas of your home with high amounts of activity.
Wine cellars need to be calm, stable and quiet. Vibration from cooling units, refrigerators, household machines and appliances and people walking or running around the home means that your wine will never truly rest. This will cause sediment to become mixed in throughout the bottle and will invariably affect the flavor of the wine.
